I drove past this between Salida and Cotopaxi on State Highway 50 in Colorado. I had to turn around and tell whoever that I stood with them totally assuming I was correct. I was and got the biggest hug of appreciation for doing so.

From my understanding, there are close to 3000 children being held around this country after being seized from their parents at the border.

Many will never see their Mom and Dad again because Republicans are totally evil.

You bastards!


Around The Neighborhood

It's time for some photos as sometimes it's hard to get done and not particularly happy with results but some of these are decent. It's just as important what's in them too. Below are several from Puerto Vallarta's Independence Day parade.

Click on the pictures to get a better look. Twice if you want.

Dogs are the most loved things here I swear.

                                        Not far from the big waters it get's steep quickly.

                                                             Steep like in straight up.

                                                             It's that time of year.

The architecture here blows me away. I do not tire of looking at it and try to capture some aspects but can't really. This one is different for sure.

                                        There is a lot going on here but not sure just what.

I just like this picture and above the house there is some grass not jungle.

                                                        Anything here you might need?
              Although out of focus been eating a few cocktails like this. This stuff is soooo good!

                 Quite a few of these around both in town and along the rivers outside of Vallarta.

                                                      Didn't even see the second one.

                                  From the Day of the Dead. These were all over the place.

                                              You can't hardly take a bad picture of this.
I have moved from a little place four miles south of Puerto Vallarta to an area of the Benito Juarez area of Remance a 10 minute walk to the mercado on the south of Vallarta known as Emiliano Zapata. My place is just to the right of the palm tree in the center of the picture and down. The casa with the curtains in the window.

Pretty decent place all in all and much less money than before. There are 68 steps which are not a problem and when you get outside it's a different breed of cat I tell you. My self and a couple from Washington state are the only gringos in this neighborhood.  


From 1/9/11

Ran across this and decided to put a link to it as not only is it the same out there but much worse these days. Any changes made have been removed to return to the good 'ol days.

Keep those thoughts and prayers coming ya see.

Our Side Does Not Kill


I Saw A Picture

On the way into Vallarta this morning I found this array of flowers to be - well pretty.

In town the totally iconic Guadalupe church.

You're in the south side of Puerto Vallarta called Centro.

On the malecon.

I don't remember seeing this. Hard to see but look closely.

Taken from a house maybe eight blocks from the water. Went and found out about an evacuation plan not insurance for medical emergencies. Pretty cool and I will do this as it can be a life saver since most all insurance from elsewhere is not accepted in Mexico.

This is a great looking casa here in Nogalito. What's inside of some of these places would blow you away.

Can't help but get a cool close up when they hold still for you.

Remember clicking on the picture makes them bigger not once generally twice.
